Schissler Academy of Fine Arts in Loveland, Colorado, is a classical art instruction academy. The primary instruction at Schissler Academy of Fine Arts is based on the underlying principles of drawing and painting taught by master painters since the Renaissance. The study of line, tone-value and basic color theory are the foundation for all mediums.
Adult and Youth Art Classes The Academy offers classes for all ages. Each art class is catered to each student and their individual ability. With each student working at their own pace.
Classes are offered in the historic Bonnell building with an academic setting. The students enjoy encouraging atmosphere where learning takes place. With a student/teacher ratio of 4 to 1 the students receive much one-to-one instruction. You will feel comfortable and safe no matter what level you are working at.
Classical Art Instruction A good drawing foundation is based on the study of line, followed by tone-value (seeing darks and lights). After these basics the students at the academy begin color theory using soft-chalk pastels learning how to see color from simple still-life object studies.
